A Quick Guide to Excel Shortcuts

Integrating keyboard shortcuts into your daily routine saves you time and energy. We love finding new ways to avoid the mouse. For instance, you can edit a cell using the F2 key. Highlight the cell you want to edit. Then, press F2 and the cursor appears at the end of the text. You can also use a combination of Shift, Ctrl, and Arrow keys to find your place in a document or highlight multiple cells.

  • Ctrl+Shift+Arrow jumps from the active cell to the last entry in a column or row, highlighting all cells between the two points.
  • Ctrl+Home takes you back to cell A1; Ctrl+Down Arrow takes you to the last nonblank cell.
  • Not sure where you typed “sequence”? Use Ctrl+F to open the Find and Replace window to correct your misspelled entry.
  • Simplify your data entry by hiding irrelevant information while you are working. Ctrl+9 hides the selected rows and Ctrl+0 hides the selected columns.

No matter the shortcut you find useful, write it down and place it in your view at your desktop. Practice makes perfect!
